Regarding the claim that excessive radiation fogged x-ray films, can someone tell us if the medical folks even use film anymore? I thought just about all x-ray imaging was digital these days.
P.S. As a retired nuclear power HP, I can point to the very detailed shielding surveys conducted during startup testing to validate the architect-engineer design specs for radiation levels. I'm a bit surprised something similar isn't performed at some level in the medical field. And what about dosimeters? Didn't the "exposed" techs have badges and wear them?
